We always end up growing more tomatoes than we can possibly eat in one summer so in September I pick the last of the crop and make sauces that I can use throughout the year.
Tofu and Carrot Noodles is such a versatile dish. It’s a great weeknight meal or serve it as a side dish for 4 people. It’s good hot or cold and it’s simply delicious.
Prawn Mayo is one of my top 3 sandwiches. It has to be on brown, seeded bread and the sauce has to be made with my 2 extra ingredients.
This is my go-to marinade for BBQ chicken. It’s sweet, tangy and smoky. The kids love pouring all the ingredients into a bowl then whisking it together.
Pickled Carrot Salad is one of my absolute favourites because it goes with so many other dishes and tastes incredible. It’s one of those dishes that just makes you feel good.
Cheesy Lentil Bites are one of my favourite things to do with tinned lentils. They are crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. They’re good cold too so I pop some in the picnic basket.
I’ve been in love with this sandwich since the first time I saw Nigel Slater make his hot feta sandwich. The contrasting flavours and temperatures make it a delight to eat.
Chilli Con Carne is a tasty, filling and nutritious family meal that can be serve with rice, taco chips or bread. This kid-friendly version makes it smoother and less spicy but still delicious.
Puttanesca is a classic pasta sauce that is ready incredibly quickly and relies on tinned and jarred ingredients. It’s incredibly good for you and once of my favourite salty dishes.
In the spring when I have leftover roast chicken I make this incredible Chicken Satay Noodle Salad for me and Paul. It is a texture sensation with a perfect balance of salt and spice.
